Get away from it all on the banks of Kamogawa River, a river flowing from the mountains northwest of the city, and running right through town. With areas of cherry blossoms, green banks, and bridges acting as meeting places for young lovers, the river provides a welcome and varied place to evade the crowds and listen to the flowing water. See how the river interacts with the city in the more developed areas, with its waters becoming central to a number of shrines and pleasant gardens.

  • Because it is to take the Hankyu to Kyoto, the car is duck Sichuan, very beautiful scenery, and then the snow in the January sky of the next piece of snow and then slowly fall down on the river, disappeared, very much the Kyoto poetry feeling, it is recommended to come here to feel the wind of Kyoto.

  • From the shokokuji Temple Heian Jingu Shrine on the way to the river has joined Takano River at Kamigamo bridge near Kamo River Delta. It is so convincing that, upstream from this Confluence the Kamo (or Kamo River) referred was that. I had twisted his head and wonder why different duck-shaped Kamigamo shrine and shimogamo shrine in time, but what I know. From Sanjo Ohashi bridge through the Shijo bridge, after the Heian Jingu Shrine of Yasaka Shrine appear to be left-handed and guides who announce "it's you" in the end. Gion and pontocho than it is in both sides of the Kamo River wanted, and even the story behind what "to-even" thank you the anecdote about should you have difficult to talk with it, or during the day?? Guide, tourist bus to a close it, "still there are evening courses. If you subsequently participate include discount. "And said the power shortage is. Is there talk of sex appeal in the course of the evening, even though more people to participate as if you somehow was none of my business.
